Reception:
Friday, August 14, 2020 | 7-10 pm
Gallery Talk at 8 pm

Target Gallery presents 3rd annual exhibition featuring the work of four regional emerging artists. This exhibition spotlights new talent and the up-and-coming artistic innovators of the D.C. metropolitan area.

 

Featured Artists

 

MK Bailey, “Grandma’s Kitchen”, 2019. Oil on Canvas.

MK Bailey, is a Washington, D.C. based artist working primarily in oil paint. Her work explores themes such as femininity, kinship, and death through unexpectedly colorful paintings. Each painting contains layers of imagery that are individually pleasant but collaged together to create a darker narrative. The work featured in this exhibition, take a slightly different approach to presenting the deeper world reference her own feelings of nostalgia encapsulated by a specific thought, memory, or dream. She received her BA in Studio Art from the University of Virginia.

 

 

 

 

Mahsa R. Fard, “Stadium II”, 2019. Acrylic on Canvas.

Mahsa R. Fard,is a painter currently residing in Baltimore, MD. She often paints man-made large scale structures such as cities, stadiums, and apparatuses. She tends to create a new association by introducing unusual color and spatial relationships. Growing up in Iran, she has always been conscious of the dominance of rigid patriarchal gaze both in the public and private sphere. Accessing public and private domains as a female requires subversive strategies. Her imagery reflects a woman’s forced duplicitous roles in these domains. Mahsa contemplates and practice these strategies in her painting and writing through metaphors of censorship, sarcasm, camouflage, cover, and disguise. Mahsa has recently graduated from LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.

 

 

 

Zia Palmer, “Richardson Store,” 2019. Photography.

Zia Palmer, is a D.C. metro area based artist focused on graphic design and photography. She received her BFA in photography and minor in graphic design from George Mason University. Zia’s photography practice focuses on historic photographic processes and explores the relationship and liminality between time, memory and place. The artwork featured in this exhibition will explore Zia’s “Las Orillas Del Mundo” series, a project that investigates being Mexican, American, and neither. The work is a compilation of photography, found objects, and family photos. Over the past two years Zia has traveled to specific ghost towns in New Mexico where her grandmother and ancestors were born.  She brings her mother and grandmother with her each time which has served as a way to reconnect to their heritage, some thing that has felt distant from them over time.

 

 

 

Latrelle Rostant, “Closer to the Unimagined”, 2019. Modular loom made of birch plywood, hardware, cotton fiber and metallic.

Latrelle Rostant, is a Maryland-based artist who primarily works with textile and fiber. She has a BFA  from Rhode Island School of Design and MFA at School of Art Institute of Chicago, with a concentration in Fiber and Materials. Through woven textiles, Latrelle explores what it means to be too foreign for the place she comes from, and the spaces she now occupies. Her work embraces the the carnival culture of her native Trinidad and Tobago which has become a space where the culture of those who were bought or came to the island are able make something that reflected, this third place for the new culture they became a part of. Each culture taking their own culture and adapting it to what they encountered when they arrived to the islands. Taking the prompt of adaptation Latrelle has adapted the loom to make objects, that like the artist, do not inherently reflect how they were made. The modular loom she created for this exhibitions, allows her to make woven objects that not only respond to how they are warped on it, but they also respond to what the artist sees as she is weaving on the modular loom. Looking at and understanding how tools, technique, space, and material can be used to make objects that cause  to reflect her own understanding of self. A third place that is the intersection of the place that she came form and the places that she now occupies.

In The Grand Hall:

“Instigating Bliss: Infinite Love”
Performance & Video by Jessica Kallista (she/her)
Performance Art and Video Art piece for Vis Arts
“The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.”
—Audre Lorde
“Prioritizing ourselves in love is a political strategy, is survival.”
—Adrienne Maree Brown

Love and Bliss are revolutionary acts. We must lay claim to the everyday moments of our lives and demand that they are filled with Love and Bliss.
Rooted in the belief that what we practice we become, Jessica Kallista’s Instigating Bliss: Infinite Love disrupts the passive nihilism intrinsic in many of our everyday lives by countering with the intentional, active, manifestation-oriented pursuit of revolutionary everyday Love and Bliss through meditation and play. She counters with consensual touch, books, sweetness, music, light, flowers, laughter, community, luxury, comfort, pleasure, eroticism, feeling, and sensuousness.
Love sometimes requires only the most minimal of interventions in order to dissolve our mindless programming and help us engage with the gorgeous reality of our interconnectedness and our connectedness to our erotic selves. Jessica invites you to participate with her in her Everyday Love and Bliss Meditation. As a Valentine gift to yourself, love, laugh, taste, touch, dance, play. Slow down. Rest. Acknowledge and embrace the power of your sensual and feeling self.

Video of will be playing throughout the evening with the Live Performance starting at 9pm.

“Sanctuary”
Interactive Performance by Jo Laing (they/them)

“All our sensory input has to pass through the reptilian part of our brain before it even reaches the cortex. Our reptilian brain always asks the same question: is this dangerous or safe?”

—Resmaa Menakem

This interactive performance by Jo Laing will be happening throughout the evening in the grand hall, the goal to foster connection and healing through one-on-one discussion and somatic experiences.  They will also be providing resources to support both mental and physical health in response to stress or trauma.

“Something that being in a queer relationship with a nonbinary person as a nonbinary person has brought up for me again and again is how the inherent trauma of being queer in a society that oppresses and represses queerness can impact our ability to feel safe and seen in our bodies as ourselves. When that trauma remains unprocessed, our nervous system becomes dysregulated, triggering fight or flight responses that make it difficult to connect with ourselves or others. For me, queer love is an act of reclamation; the creation of a sanctuary in which to practice connection somatically in order to rebuild trust in ourselves and the ones we love.

It is through engaging in new narratives and somatic experiences that we create corrective healing experiences. Being able to safely give and receive love from ourselves and others allows us to let go of unhelpful beliefs and reclaim our right to love and pleasure. In Sanctuary, I create a space to share what safety in love feels like, and to demonstrate how consensual connection can be a powerful source of healing.”

— Jo Laing

“Longing” 
By Lucas J. Rougeux (he/him)

“Longing” is an hour-long performance piece in which a performer, sitting at one end of a long table, extends a hand and slowly reaches with full body to the chair at the other end of the table. Viewers are welcome to participate by sitting in the empty chair and respond to the performers desire for connection. This piece presents a strenuous desire for connection and forces participants to weigh how far they would go to make connection in spite of the challenges faced.

This performance will start at 9pm.

 

Tiny Queer Zines
by Kim Sandara (she/her)

2019 Post-Grad Resident Kim Sandara will be displaying and selling her Tiny Queer Zines. Which was a collaborative project done during her residency at the Torpedo Factory Art Center summer . The project was inspired by the kids who would come into her studio and come out to her after reading about Origins of Kin and Kang, the graphic novel she working on her coming out story. She collected anonymous stories from the DMV area from people in the LGBTQ+ community and allies, all centering queer stories/personal experiences. Then she paired the stories randomly to LGBTQ+ and ally artists who were interested in illustrating one. The goal of this project was to bring people together, destigmatize queerness and make queer stories accessible. The final product ended up being dynamic in variation of stories and illustration styles. The zine printing was also fundraised for so that people may purchase them by a donation-basis with a $5.00 minimum.

My Queer Valentine

The newest group exhibition in Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibitions space of Torpedo Factory Art Center, offers a poignant look at love and relationships for LGBTQ+-identifying people.

My Queer Valentine explores love through non-heteronormative and non-binary relationships. The exhibition features 16 artists, 8 who are from Virginia or the D.C. greater metropolitan area.

Participating Artists

Nicholas Aiden, St. John’s, NL, Canada

Exhibition juror Andy Johnson, a D.C.-based independent curator and gallery director of Gallery 102 at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at The George Washington University, has dedicated much of his curatorial career to unpacking queer intimacy.

“While My Queer Valentine has everything to do with the relationship to those around us, it’s also equally invested in the relationship we have with our queer realities, and the ways in which queerness shapes and informs our lived experience,” he said. “My Queer Valentine is as much a love letter to ourselves as it is a disclosing of longing to our community.”

Queerness or identifying as LGBTQ+ encapsulates many identities that are not necessary set within a spectrum. This diversity in perspective is represented in a various styles, mediums, and tones in this exhibition.

For instance, Aurele Gould has three works on view that explore concepts of intimacy for queer women through different narrative portraits of her girlfriend. Alex captures the act of undressing, creating a flirtatious dialogue between the subject and the viewer.

Matt Storm has two works from his Act of Looking series, which articulates and recognizes inclusive ways to see his trans body. The piece Act of Looking II, 17, Crossing My Fingers, Getting Away with Something is a playful love letter to the artist’s sexuality as a transmasculine person.

Artist Miki Beyer’s mixed-media work You’re Already There. You Already Have Me. is also a love-letter, but this time between the artist and their partner. They use dialogue from past conversations between the two of them that addresses the panic of identity-erasure as a non-binary person while in cisgender/heterosexual-presenting relationship. It also speaks to the love for each other that promises for a better tomorrow.

Don’t miss the special Valentine’s themed reception on Friday, February 14, 7 – 10 pm, with juror talk at 8 pm. The evening features interactive performance art, a photo op at our kissing booth, and DIY art-making activities. Learn more about and support local LGBTQ+ organizations, too.
